White Truffle with Lamberto

The Luxurious Taste of White Truffle  @ Bengawan at Keraton at The Plaza Starts October 26th, 2013

In the height of White Truffle season, Keraton at the Plaza’s Culinary Director, Lamberto Valdez Lara, brings you the prestigious White Truffle starting from October 26 until the end of the year. Especially imported from Italy, the white truffle is highly prized for its unique aroma and savory taste compared to the regular black truffle and it is only available from September to December.

Lamberto has created a finely crafted White Truffle based menu, such as Sautéed Foie Gras with White Truffle Coulis, Kobe beef strip loin with Cauliflower puree, truffle oil and shavings, and other specialties. Not to be missed is our decadent white truffle desserts, such as Pear and White Truffle Tart Tatin with Vanilla Gelato and Tiramisu with White Truffles and Coffee Essence.
